AT&T may not have been kidding when they said this launch would beat the iPhone; key driver is "free" price
I joined the pre-order fest of Nokia Oyj.'s (
over the weekend. I preordered Saturday, not long
after the preorder
and $100 off
-- deal went live.
Sadly! I received the following email later that day from AT&T:
The items in your order are currently out of stock and will be shipped when inventory becomes available. When the items in your order ship, we'll send you an email with the ship tracking number(s).
Now I'm assuming that Nokia and its U.S. carrier partner, AT&T, Inc. (
), has a large stock of Lumia 900s, given that they've had
months to prepare
, and that they're saying this launch will be
bigger than any iPhone launch to date
Operating under this assumption, the sold out status indicates that the demand for the Lumia 900 is very high -- likely in the millions of units. Looks like Microsoft Corp.'s (
in Nokia is finally paying dividends. This should be a big boost to
Windows Phone's market share
If the above hypothesis is correct, AT&T might not have been kidding when they said this would be there biggest smartphone launch ever. For myself and fellow wait-listed preorder customers, it's a bit disappointing, but I'm hopeful it will be worth the wait.
I will update you with an article about my impressions on the phone and discussing the experience of switching from Android to Windows Phone, when I receive my unit.

Last friday I called to pre-order my phone. The lady on the phone said she is not able to do pre-orders because they only handle what's in the warehouse. I'm guessing that the reason we all received the "out of stock" email was because the Lumia 900 is not at the warehouse. I went to the ATT store on Saturday and the sales rep showed me his computer and told me that his system is linked to the warehouse.
I guess I'll begin to worry on Friday if I don't receive mine. Come on ATT, send me a sign that my phone is coming! I already bought a case!!! :)
